has pope francis brings his speech to the 70-80,000 has pope francis brings his speech to the 70—80,000 strong crowd to a close at this festival of families at the dublin stadium. there was a very irish reference, if i might draw attention to it, when he talked about family life. he said he doesn't like making tea. it is easy to bring the water to a boil, but a good cup of tea takes time and patience. it needs to brew. very much the focus of his visit, this festival of families, the world meeting of families that is taking place and dublin. with neither theologian father eamon conway. we spoke earlier today as well. —— with me, the theologian. so on the thursday of this visit, we
9:33 pm
we re so on the thursday of this visit, we were chatting earlier, and you are saying how he was very much bringing the church into family life, but in the church into family life, but in the actions of everyday life, that is where the church is at? his key m essa 9 es is where the church is at? his key messages beyond the words he spoke today. what really matters in the churches family life in the ordinary circumstances of everyday. hopes, bishops, priests, cardinals, they are not the most important people in the church. a sin for pope francis is what he calls clericalism, thinking that priests have some kind of priority pass to holiness. that is in the everyday circumstances of everyday life, making a cup of tea, saying we are sorry, showing forgiveness and being open to correction, the ordinary, everyday moments of human life. that's where pope francis wants to look for price and find christ, and he is really transforming the church in this regard, and it is actually quite profound. one part that particularly struck you was a reference to
9:34 pm
someone you know, a struck you was a reference to someone you know, a priest who was killed in iraq, and about the strength of his family. yes, he spoke particularly about how they could have chosen hatred, but they chose forgiveness. he helped that up as an example. he has opened a cause for the beatification of that priest. he lived as a seminarian with the irish seminarians in rome and used to come to ireland during the summer holidays. and here are really joyful and strong celebration of vitality in that faith. they faith that in ireland has been severely tested 7 faith that in ireland has been severely tested? indeed, and will be tested again. this is a moment of celebration, as many families have. we will go back on monday morning to picking up the pieces again, to reconciliation and peace where it needs to be found, but it is time for moments of celebration as well. and we were talking than about the response to abuse. we have heard the pope has met survivors of clerical abuse today, eight of them, in dublin, speaking to them for 90
9:35 pm
minutes. we are still to hear much of the detail of that, but they think the pope may have said something to them that goes further than what he said in his public addresses so far? i would say more important than that... he may have, we don't know. he will protect the sacredness of that encounter. 90 minutes with eight people, that is quite intense. i do think they will have sensed from that his deep personal and the people what they went through. he used the word filter. cardinal ratzinger used that in 2005 also. a very strong word in italian to express that sense of absolute horror and repugnant. —— filth, and he'd listen to them. i was delighted that marie collins was among them. she has gone out of her way to build bridges with those who have suffered in the church. for our viewers, that is victim of abuse marie collins, who stood down from the vatican's commission on abuse because she was frustrated with the progress and the attitudes, yet testa m e nt to progress and the attitudes, yet testament to her that she is still here today and has been talking to
9:36 pm
the pope. extraordinary. that woman, we owe her so much from a church point of view, really. and it through my confidence when she resigned from that commission, to think that she could not actually be heard. yet there were others today who say they feel underwhelmed by what the pope has said. we have had different interpretations of how much we might have inspected him to say, but some clearly disappointed. they would have liked to have heard more from him in terms of concrete steps and actions and plans for dealing with abuse for those who cover it up. i can understand that, andi cover it up. i can understand that, and i don't think everything could be said perhaps in these couple of days. if you look back over the text, the words and gestures, a lot has been said. 0bviously text, the words and gestures, a lot has been said. obviously more needs to be done. we talk about these cases as historic, but the pain is not historic. the pain remains were so not historic. the pain remains were so many victims, to need to listen to that and to respond to it more fully. father eamon conway, thank you very much for your thoughts this evening here in dublin. we see there
9:37 pm
at croke park, the italian tenor andrea bocelli, singing again for the crowd of around 80,000 people. of around 80,000 people. and as we reflect on the end of this first day of pope francis' visit to ireland, we could perhaps think about the desire expressed by the irish prime minister leo varadkar for a new chapter, new relationship between the church and state. of course, the end of the two days, there will be much reflection on whether we are at that point, at the beginning of a new chapter. many of the assessments i have had today from victims of abuse, from lgbt campaigners and others, are already that they are saying, they are not
9:38 pm
at that point. they do not feel that they are, that ireland and the church is at the beginning of a new chapter. but for many others, they believe that the pope is saying the right things, that he is taking action. so not everyone is happy, but then, we would not have expected that they would be. it has been a long day for the 81—year—old pontiff, showing incredible stamina for someone of his age as he has gone from engagement to engagement with not very much of a break in between, it has to be said. and as i was discussing with father eamon conway,
9:39 pm
we are waiting to hear, crucially, if any news does come from that 90 minute meeting that he had with survivors of sexual abuse here are a few hours ago in dublin, just before he came to croke park. among the eight, two priests, and marie collins, who we spoke about, who has talked publicly many times on the matter. so we may well hear something from her, but that description emerging after the meeting, that the pontiff, when he spoke to them, described the abuse perpetrated by priests and other members of catholic institutions, as filth. and looking ahead to the second day of the visit tomorrow, we will see pope francis travel to knock in the

west of ireland, a religious shrine, a place of great importance for the catholic faith, where many pilgrims visit, 1.5 million each year, catholic faith, where many pilgrims visit,1.5 million each year, and then there will be another gathering and a mass in phoenix park in dublin, which will be the conclusion of this world meeting of families, taking part in the irish capital this weekend. we will bring you continuing coverage tomorrow after the pope's schedule. bringing new analysis and reaction to his speeches, and to the events in which he is taking part tomorrow. for now, though, from dublin, it is back to the studio. and there is much more on the pope's visits ireland on our website, including a minute by minute live page from our reporters, and answers

boxers, tonight both are set to make seven—figure sums in a pay—per—view fight broadcast live, not on satellite tv, but on youtube. for anyone who says this is wwe, it will be scripted, a lot of people watching this fight are very young. how good a role model are you? i never like people calling me a role model. i am not a role model. i'm just a guy that does things on the internet. if people are inspired by that then that is cool. logan paul is the baddie of the piece after causing global outrage earlier this year by filming the body of an apparent suicide victim in a japanese forest. i do not expect to be forgiven. i am simply here to apologise. today, he made it clear he is still trying to make amends. i do not think this is the redemption. i think it may mark a part of it,
9:53 pm
but by no means is this fight redemption for my mistake that happened injanuary. this fight also shows the way that entertainment industry is changing. over the last decade youtube stars have worked out how to monetise their huge online following. this has taken it to a different level. this is an audience used to not paying. it is a pay—per—view event so live numbers, we're expecting it to be huge, but over the period of time of the content, it will run to hundreds of millions of impressions. whover loses, everyone is set to be a winner. a rematch in the us is already booked in for early next year. and a reminder of our top story... pope francis is on a two—day visit to ireland. it is the first papal visit ireland since popejohn paul ii in1979. visit ireland since popejohn paul ii in 1979. these pictures show the pope arriving at croke park stadium little earlier, and he hasjust

9:55 pm
trend to something cooler over the next few days. earlier on tuesday morning, only two or three celsius. so there have been murmurs about autumn, which meteorologically speaking, isjust autumn, which meteorologically speaking, is just around the corner. i sense there will be a feeling of autumn through sunday as the frontal system works eastwards, bringing some outbreaks of rain, strengthening the winds, and all will see some wind at some stage through sunday. it slowly pushes its way from west to east, and of the rain is going to have particularly over higher ground. turning drier in the afternoon. some strong winds, particularly gusty across southern and western coasts. 12—13 is the— scotland, and 14—19 elsewhere. given the strength of the wind and rain, it will feel quite cool wherever you are. through sunday evening and overnight, the frontal system works
9:56 pm
its way eastwards. so some strong winds through time, showery rain in parts of scotland. on monday, which way from scotland as a bank holiday, we start with a milder feel, 10—15 the overnight low. for many of us on monday, it should be a reasonable day. there will be some cloud coming and going and spells of sunshine. a scattering of showers, but like on saturday, many places will stay largely dry. the winds will be later as well, so where we get the sunshine, 19—20 to the top temperature will stop cooler for the far north of scotland. ronchi ‘s day, we're mostly between systems. this front approaching will increase bile across ireland and northern england, and we will see some outbreaks of rain arriving as well. south and east, mostly dry, the rain much lighter, and some good style of sunshine. temperatures perhaps even a bit higher on tuesday across much of england and, 22—23 the top temperature here. into wednesday,
9:57 pm
some uncertainty as to this area of low pressure developing over the continent. it looked like a good throw up some showery heavy rain across southern and eastern counties of england on wednesday. something dry area in between before rain arrives to the day, turning drier and fresher across northern ireland, northern and western scotland. a bit ofa northern and western scotland. a bit of a messy day on wednesday, but on thursday, pressure starts to build and many of us will have a mainly dry day. temperatures are bit lower than average for the time of year, 16-20, but than average for the time of year, 16—20, but pleasant enough in any sunshine. we could see another spell of rain through friday, chiefly across northern ireland, northern wales and north—west england and western scotland. elsewhere, mainly dry, quite large amounts of cloud. the best of the sunshine the further south and east you are. saturday is the 1st of september, and meteorologically speaking, that is the start of autumn. as we go
9:58 pm
through into next weekend, things will start to turn a little bit drier, maybe a bit warmer, because we see this area of high pressure in the south—west of the uk just starting to build. you will notice that fronts are never too far away from northern ireland and northern and western parts of scotland, so here, we could still susan showery rain around at times. but for many, next week and looks a little bit warmer and drier, and that theme could well continue further ahead, as that area of high pressure continues to build. thejet as that area of high pressure continues to build. the jet stream isa continues to build. the jet stream is a little further northwards, but there will still bring some outbreaks of rain and strong winds for scotland and northern ireland. that is all from me. goodbye. this is bbc news, i'm lukwesa burak. the headlines at 10. pope francis is in ireland, for the first papal visit in almost a0 years. he's been addressing a crowd of over 80,000 at croke park in dublin tonight. women in england are to be allowed to take the second of two early abortion pills in their own homes — instead of in a clinic.
